Interview with Dino [email protected](dinobvggio)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

I was heartbroken by A$AP Rocky’s little sister and turned my pain into fashion. I created a Culturally Inspired Fashion Brand “BVGGIO”. It is based on my Italian and Palestinian heritage. In 2018, Spotify went public and as this happened, a few Artists I would style told me to create a Playlist on Spotify and the rest is history. I connected within months with what turned out to be United Masters and was apart of some legendary campaigns via Spotify Playlists. I have been apart of the NLE Choppa Spotify marketing team which was my biggest accomplishment. I later ran campaigns for Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, French Montana, and list goes on. I’ve worked with every Artist I’ve wanted to, next step is to help the Independent Artists grow and learn and eventually monetize by themselves. The youth is the future.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?

I remember going to A$AP Rocky’s second Album release party and being in VIP dancing with his grandmother. That was by far one of the most interesting and amazing experiences. Nothing but love for Rock’s family, they’ve shown me nothing but love and still do! I appreciate that more than most accomplishments in my career.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

I would tell them to make sure you are ready for the roller coaster. Be prepared with 2-3 months work ahead so when you are posting, it is non stop and consistent.

None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

A$AP Rocky for sure is the most inspirational entertainer in the industry, music, fashion and video all in one, setting trends in all lanes. No one compares to him and his legacy. I was very grateful to be around his presence a few times and soaked up as much game and knowledge as possible.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

That is my goal for the future. I am looking to spread the knowledge to the youth so they can act upon bettering themselves and the people around them. This will make an overall better world for my children and their children.

Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

“A Hit Isn’t Made, It’s Marketed.” My career lives by this. I am a Spotify Curator and this is the honest truth. I’ve been apart of endless studio sessions and can say it did not become a hit until the Artist actually released the track and promoted it correctly.
